Hello everyone! Welcome back to the Rock and Roll Revival! I grew up listening to music before the days of MTV and videos. Like everybody else, I listened to music over the radio. I became intriged by song from Kiss, Calling Dr. Love So, I went to the store and bought my first album ever, Love Gun. I had no idea what the band looked like or what. Come to find out, it was them on the cover! The bizarre costumes and make-up! Cool, I thought. I was only twelve years old and became obcessed with Kiss.
My interest in Kiss waned over the years as I picked upon more talented artists like Led Zeppelin. I grew away from the gimmicks that filled rock music. I became more focused on the music itself. Personally, I don't care what they look like anymore, as long as the music is good.
We live in an image conscience world. Where first impression "matters." You can't judge a book by it's cover. The same applies to music. So my question is-should a band an image, gimmick, or controversy to sell themselves or just let the music do the talking?
BTW-I still think Kiss rocks!!!
